Never again! by sdwelch

Overall very disappointing. Although we enjoyed the shows and entertainment, between the sewage smell and the terrible experiences throughout the week we are not likely to cruise with MSC again. One thing I would add is that compared to other cruises, there was little information about the excursions. The TV showed lots of pictures but not what excursion would take you to the places you see. There was no meetings in advance about the various excursions or details. This could have been handled much better. The WORST part of the ports is that there was an additional charge to take the shuttle to town! I have never had to pay for this before-and it was expensive at that!

This is Italian! by tans444

Food was beautifully presented but was bland. A real shame! The waiters were super attentive! Cabin crew were so friendly and could not do enough to please us passengers. The buffet was always so crowded and people pushed and shoved and and finding a table free was almost impossible. Too many passengers for too little space at Buffet

Party Boat No much time in Greece by ishagc

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The boat was older and due to be updated. No much to do for younger children under 3. They only spent 4-5 hours in Santorini which i took i hour to commute to the shore and they wanted us on the boat 1 hour.  I would spend more money and also stop by Greece.  The food was good especially when they had special meals. Had a special menu for baby 12 months and under. Which was nice because they did not offer much for children under 3.

If you are planning to take the "Night out in Mykonos" excursion you should know that there will be smoking inside the restaurant. If we had know this we would not have taken this excursion. Our night was ruined by the smoking. We couldn't even eat for all the smoke. Disgusting!

Wait til you get to the location to book an excursion much cheaper.

Make sure to register a credit card for on-board purchases and mandatory tipping charges while on board to avoid being denied disembarkation for balance due. Also, make sure your cell phone is in airplane mode to avoid $5..99 per minute charge for calls from on-board cell service!!
